Redskins lose Nick Sundberg, Bryan Kehl for the season

Nick Sundberg AP

The Redskins special teams gave up some big plays to the Cowboys on Sunday night, leading coach Mike Shanahan to say after the game that the team would be emphasizing that phase in the game during practice this week.

Their efforts to put forth a better performance will have to come without a couple of key members of the units. Shanahan announced Monday that long snapper Nick Sundberg and linebacker Bryan Kehl are both out for the season.

Sundberg injured his knee during the game and the torn meniscus is too severe for the Redskins to make him a two-time recipient of the designation to return from injured reserve tag. The Redskins used it on Sundberg after he broke a bone in his arm last season and then signed Sundberg to a four-year extension in the offseason.

Kehl tore his ACL in the game, bringing his second season with the Redskins to a close. Kehl was originally a fourth-round pick of the Giants in 2008 and joins Kenny Phillips, Terrell Thomas and Mario Manningham as members of that Giants draft class to deal with serious knee injuries during their careers.

    It’s not fair. We are the best team pound for pound in the East. But Goodell has it out for Snyder. #TheRedskinsarebeingmadeanexampleoutof

    No biggie. 1-4 the season is already over. The Redskins need to go into full rebuilding mode.

    Being the best team in the NFC East is nothing to brag about. R-Words will be irrelevant again, and the superior Ravens franchise will keep winning.

    how is goodell out for snyder? not that im a fan of goodell but theyre injuries, not fines. youre obviously a distraught fan who after last season had ridiculous aspirations for them.

    6 – 10 sounds about right.

    Those draft packs they gave up for RG3 are starting to hurt just like the falcons who are feeling the draft picks they gave up for julio.

    How is the season over when the best teams in the division are 3-3 and play each other on Sunday? Some real idiots in here.

  8. footballfan01 says: Oct 14, 2013 4:18 PM

    Maybe RGIII should spend more time watching game film and less time shooting Subway commercials. At least he’s still better than Weeden.

  9. chicagogiantsfan says: Oct 14, 2013 4:19 PM

    It’s probably John Mara’s fault.

    On a side note, this may qualify as stupidest logical post. Congratulations!

    dilusionalvoicesays… “Its not fair! We are the best team pound for pound in the NFC East! Goodell has it out for little Danny Snyder and the Redskins”!!!

    AAAWWWWW SHUUUT UUUP! You little whinny baby! Goodell has NO control over injuries, penalties, or how BAD your team is. Ever thought it could be that they are a 1-4 team? they’re BAAAD!!
    COME ON MAN! step away from the ledge, There is always next year……

    I think the Special Teams need to lose a few more players.

    My God! Robert Griffin hasn’t outpaced Adrian Peterson recovery from knee reconstruction surgery! Looks like it’s time to close the book, his career is over.

    I don’t know but I thought Roger G. looked cozy with his hand on Jerry J.’s thigh in the owners box.

    I think Logical knows his stuff……how else do you explain having 10x the penalties and a clear turnover in excellent field position overturned.

    I think Roger might have been penalized, in good position, and overturned. Just saying.

    ________________

    I can’t undestand how this myth is still persisting. There’s no price too high for a premier franchise quarterback. The Redskins gave up the 38th pick in 2012, the 22nd pick this year and will give up a pick in the teens this year. at 38, they probably would have picked a guy like Mitchell Schwartz, at 22 they probably would have taken Xavier Rhodes, and next year they would probably get a guy like CJ Moseley out of Bama. Schwartz is a good right tackle, and will be a solid starter for years. I think Rhodes could be one of the league’s premier DB’s pretty early in his career; Moseley also projects to be an excellent defensive starter.

    However, if you think a very good RT, DB, and ILB are as valuable as a franchise quarterback, you simply don’t know football. Considering that Shanahan has drafted more starters over the last three years than any other team in the league, and that, starting only two first round picks on offense in 2012, the Redskins were the second-highest scoring team in the league; I really don’t see how these picks are going to devastate the team the way everyone predicts.

    Congrats to the Rams ($hitty team solidarity) I really hope they continue to get better, but there’s no Rams/Redskins rivalry or reason for animosity between the two franchises, and this deal was clearly a win-win for both teams.

    Redskins can still play spoiler? That should be their motto every year. They should put it on a sign and hang it in the locker room maybe even touch it for good luck

  31. mcarey032 says: Oct 15, 2013 12:01 AM

    And the hits just keep on coming.

  32. blackbeard43 says: Oct 15, 2013 12:33 AM

    I’m outraged that there hasn’t been any more stories about RGIII!

    And you know what? I’m gonna side with the Washington Redskins and I think logicalvoice is right the Redskins is God’s team!

    All 31 other teams are not worthy to be in the same league as the skins. And if the franchise is gonna change its name can they change their uniforms too?

    The players will be wearing capes, flowing in the wind because they’re beyond human. They’re a superior race of being! And they have super powers!

    And Robert Griffin III is a god! A god that shoots fire from his eyes and lightning out his ass and all other NFL teams should bow down to them!

    BOW DOWN TO THE REDSKINS! BOW DOWN!!!!

    Come on man, no reason to sir up antagonism where none should exist. The Rams are heading in right direction, and regardless of their on-field performance so far this season, the Redskins are too. Changeover makes following the NFL fun. I know I for one am looking forward to the day when the Rams, Redskins, Raiders, and Browns replace the Saints, Packers, Patriots, and Ravens as the NFL’s elite teams. Just look at the Chiefs this year or the Redskins last year. Bad teams becoming powerhouses is what makes football exciting, and there’s no reason for us former doormat franchises to snipe at each other, or wish the worst on one another.
